2017-06-13 Armenia: Horizon 2020 - Science Education Outside the Classroom

Horizon 2020 - Science Education Outside the Classroom

Description of the project offered: 
Our intention is to initiate a joint proposal in the framework of Horizon2020 “Science with and for Society” scheme, topic: “Science education outside the classroom”. The corresponding call for proposals is released in April and the deadline for application is August 30th (see please participants/portal/desktop/ en/opportunities/h2020/topics/ swafs-11-2017.html). 

In few words, the specific challenge to be addressed is that science education outside the classroom (informal education) is not well explored in their nature and effects. And the scope, in general, relates to the analysis of the available knowledge on science education outside the classroom and its impact on citizens, taking into account possible gender and geographical differences.

To address this specific challenge, proposals should have a wide geographical coverage. It is therefore expected that consortia would include at least entities from 10 different Member States or Associated Countries. Armenia is now in the list of associated countries so we can be part of the consortium. The EC considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of the order of EUR 3 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately.

I hope you will be interested in this initiative and I would like to invite interested organizations to join the future Consortium. 

Please let me know your opinion on this initiative. Surely, besides technical issues on putting together an eligible Consortium, we need to work a lot to design a competitive proposal. On our side, we will do my best in backing the proposal.
